Livable Living | “Green” Walls

We are loving this emerging concept, not only as a trend but as an important building component…

Living Walls, an economic approach to design!

 These living walls can help to remove formaldehyde, VOCs, Carbon Monoxide and many other harmful pollutants. A living wall, or green wall, is a vertically growing garden. Not only are they, um…GORGEOUS, but they are also known to contribute to the environment,  save you energy and benefit your health!!  These living walls can help to remove formaldehyde, VOCs, Carbon Monoxide and many other harmful pollutants. Bamboo palm, azalea, chrysanthemums, spider plants and aloe vera, ivy and peace lilies are known plans that remove toxins.

Plants relieve stress, reduce noise and eliminate pollution. They produce productivity and tranquility. Not only do they produce clean air for your home to breathe, but are a great source of edible herbs and vegetables!

There are several ways living walls can be constructed. First thing would be to contact your local clean air garden specialist to find out if your home fits the criteria for a living wall!!

What the Print? | Cheetah vs Leopard

Heres a question…what is the difference between cheetah, leopard and jaguar print?? What about Ocelot, do you even know what kind of animal that is?

Well, here it is…

cheetah-spots-1

Cheetah spots are equally spaced, solid black dots.

leopard-spots

Leopard print is more complex. They have a golden brown coat with black shapes that resemble a horseshoe or circle.

jaguar-spots

We typically never use the term “Jaguar Print”, but we can certainly see the difference in the pattern!  It is defined by a larger “horseshoe” shape with inconsistent black spots inside.

Ocelot-spots

The ocelot print is another pattern that is commonly used but not referenced as such because it is not a commonly known animal. Their spots are like the cats above, but they are elongated or stretched the length of their body.

Now that we’ve sorted that out, we are excited to be able to correctly identify the spots on some of our favorite animal print fabrics! Hope this helps you too!!
